During their travels they saw many historic churches and castles. They saw monuments, Roman buildings and event ancient Stonehenge. They had the opportunity to learn about 16th century architecture, British royal history and the French revolution. Of course the group also visited some very popular tourist sites like the Eiffel Tower.  One goal of the trip was to try foods from different cultures. Visiting large international cities makes it possible to try foods from many places. The group ate foods from England, Wales, France, Turkey, India, Spain and Italy.  International foods added some spice to our adventure.
Girl Scouts is supported by the United Way.  The organizations goal is to teach girls the confidence to lead others in making the world a better place.  This trip helped the scouts to better understand the cultures and history that shape our world.

Troop leaders are Joan Krikava and Naomi Stewart.  Parents (not pictured) Ronda Kletscher, Kelly Hillesheim, Shari Kretsch and Doreen Schmitt came along on the trip.
